Thermo King unveils ConnectedSuite telematics offerings

Aug. 20, 2019
New ConnectedSuite features include the TK Notify mobile app and Connect & Share.

The ConnectedSuite platform is a complete package of Thermo King technology for a fleet’s connected assets that provides crucial information in real-time. The robust, secure platform collects and aggregates data for a large number of mobile assets to ensure that valuable loads arrive on-time and in optimal condition. ConnectedSuite now includes more features to help fleets improve efficient temperature management, FSMA compliance, and further optimize asset utilization.

TracKing is a flexible ConnectedSuite system that integrates easily with fleet management systems. Fleets can monitor critical cargo temperatures, trailer locations, refrigeration unit settings, and alarms through the dispatch process from pickup through delivery. Integrated information of loaded refrigerated trailers in-route allows dispatchers and planners to quickly remedy issues that may cause damage and delay load delivery decisions. New ConnectedSuite TracKing features include:

TK Notify app

  • The TK Notify mobile application provides data-rich notifications and a detailed view of the status of units so fleets can make informed decisions in real-time. TK Notify provides a quick snapshot of the status of the unit when an event occurs. Information includes setpoint, return air, discharge air, sensor temperature door status, mode of operation, and the location of the unit at the exact time a problem occurs, giving fleet owners a clear snapshot of the reefer during the event.
  • The app sends notifications when a unit requires maintenance. Managers can escalate events to drivers, service technicians, or dealers to streamline communication and optimize fleet performance while a repair is underway.
  • TK Notify is free and available for download on Google Play and the Apple App Store.

Connect & Share

  • Connect & Share is a convenient data-sharing service for fleets that use third-party telematics. Connect & Share provides data access to third-party telematics and allows fleets to gather temperature, position, and operational information, without the need for third-party hardware. Fleets can send two-way commands depending on the system capabilities.
